Running in Toronto

One of the challenges I have to overcome is my ability to stick to my running even while on the road. Of late, I have been on the road a lot and my running had taken a back seat and I don't like it. I was determined to reverse it yesterday in Toronto and I did..

Edwards Garden - running trail
Though it was raining and cold, I made it a point to look for a park near Markham, Canada and ended up in Edwards Garden. The first site of the running trail wasn't too encouraging, it was slushy and wasn't inviting but fellow runners assured of better track just a few yards away and they were right..

There were miles and miles of decent track which was great. The weather though was in single digits.. once I started running, I felt comfortable and kept running..

running.. till
Nature, Clean Air and miles of running Trail.. what more could a runner ask for..
the rain came down heavily forcing me retreat back to my car.

Overall, I was happy with this run though could have done a little more.. I am in LA for a week now and want to hit the track most of the days... I might be able to do it after all... With my family stuck in Chennai, I might as well make use of the 'free' time.
